Beetiful designed the book cover for Lady Law and the Texas DeRangers, a western novel by Xina Marie Uhl.
Cowboys, Indians, and outlaws.
It may be 1892 but the Old West is still alive and kicking in the dusty west Texas town of Abalone. When a bad batch of coleslaw kills Texie Cortez’s father she takes over his old job:
She’s proud of how she keeps the gunslingers away and the cowpokes in order. Then HE comes to town.
Gambler Alec Malone aims to attract attention with his handsome face and slick smile. One look at the sassy sheriff and his womanizing ways get the best of him. Too bad his mysterious mission keeps getting in the way.
The appearance of an outlaw gang proves that Alec is just the kind of distraction Texie doesn’t need. She’s deter-mined that his smart mouth and soft lips won’t keep her from tracking down the weirdest bandits in Texas!
